acknowledges we should do something for background checks. reporter: after president obama says he does skeet shooting at camp david all the time, he enjoys competing with friends. it will impose stronger penalties for stock purchases. it is not clear how far the house is willing to go in president's proposal if at all. lou: mike emanuel, thank you. our chief congressional correspondent. our first guest tonight says that nablus may have seen a decline in murders, this to be his doing so without any laws that infringe upon the second amendment. joining us now is the research director at the athens institute . let's start with minneapolis. do you think that they have improved? we would like to point out again that minneapolis has almost twice the murder rate as the national average. >> yes, but that is better than it used to be around 1996. he made a lot of progress. as the president said, a variety of programs to try to keep young people from joining gangs. some of those have been successful. secondly, the state of minnesota enacted one of the strongest right to carry laws in 2003. that is an
that president obama is personally going to bulldoze something related to reagan, even if he isn't? and do you remember wing gate? it is the secret i am a muslim ring, the ring obama has been wearing for more than 30 years has the first part of the islamic declaration of faith. did i say the ring means he is muslim?
anyone that barack obama nominates. and the surge was something that was his. i think that almost in a way john mccain made the surge into the war as john mccain would have fought it as commander-in-chief, and anyone who questions it gets the wrath of mccain. and i watched that hearing or that part of the hearing with colonel jack jacobs and patrick murphy, the former congressman of pennsylvania that served in iraq. both of those guys have been at the bottom of the pile, as jack jacobs calls it, like hagel and mccain, you just view war differently. but the lesson these two men took from vietnam seems to be so different. hagel took the questioning, the same thing patrick murphy feels, being lied to and knowing that anger that your friends died for what you believe to be a lie. mccain seems to have taken something different from it. >> we're all different. here is chuck hagel in vietnam back in '68 when he went in. he was an enlisted soldier and rose to sergeant. a noncommissioned officer with the infantry, a grunt as they used to say in vietnam. this is navy pilot john mccain with
's something mrs. obama is not telling us, this is really a moot point. he's not going to have a son, this is not going to be an issue. however, this is america's game. we do have two brothers here competing as head coaches in the super bowl because their father got them into this sport. now so many parents around the country are wondering, is it safe for my kid to play football? roger goodell today answered the president's words. while he welcomed the president's interest in this and while he wants to make the game safer, his own time playing as a youth is something he wouldn't give up and he brought up some of the things the nfl is trying to do to try to make the game safer, talking about bringing in independent neurologists who aren't associated with the team and they will tell players whether they think they should go back into the game. he also talked about the idea of increasing the fines and suspensions for the kinds of hits and acts on the field that are going to be causing some of those issues. i have to tell you, there is controversy out there. the players don't think the m
's something that obama has always been for, a lot of democrats have always been for it. the white house wasn't publicly pushing for this. they'd be fighting against their own basin stead of focusing on the issues where they want to focus. you saw even during the process of coming up with these proposals, vice president biden very clearly in public statements drawing this up didn't mention the assault weapons ban but other parts of it. early on, the white house setting the stage for this bifurcation. you can push for the assault weapons ban and signal to really the moderate democrats in the senate who don't want that vote that it's okay for them not to go along with the assault weapons ban but don't give up on the rest of the package. let's get something done. i think that's the situation we have right now in the senate. >> all right. michael, thank you very much. >> thanks a lot. >>> much more ahead. let's take a moment to acknowledge the death of an american hero, someone that made a deep impression on the staff of this show. chris kyle did five combat tours in iraq, known as the deadliest
of president obama. his endorsement in the pivotal period with the turbulence in turmoil early after south carolina, i think he would have been important inside the system as a push towards something bigger and would have pushed to have more connection to outside the beltway. obama it is now traveling on the country. he is forced to because of the election. if you sit inside the beltway too long and get in the backroom deals -- >> even movements can be cloistered. i remember a dinner during the george w. bush administration in southern california. it was norman lear and his wife, larry david, bob scheer. they were sitting around w eeping in their expensive soup about the fact that we were living in hell. rupert murdoch on the media. george bush was president. norman lear had his pulse on american culture for 30 years. why cannot figure out how to deal -- deliver a message that is important and happening? >> that is important. we can find messages that speak to people where they are. they can also have some satire like stewart or colbert. there is the idea of exposing with satire. it opens
>> bret: finally tonight interesting update to a report we brought you earlier in week. something that president obama promised on day one of his first term. and now, one show, apparently has some new scoop. >> after years of empty promises, he is closing guantanamo office of closing guantanamo. we did it! finally america can move beyond the sad chapter of trying to close down our glub by the sea. choting the office of closing guantanamo not a moment too soon. i heard the condition in the office were horrific. people held for years and in cramp corners and water coole coolered. special envoy in charge of closing the president, daniel freed seen here judging mankind. has been reassigned to work on issues like iran and syria. that is just more obama cronyism. the guy fails at one job so they give him cushy post of solving the middle east. >> shepard: oh, yes. thank you for inviting us in your home. that is it for this "special report." fair, balanced and unafraid. ♪ ♪ >> shepard: this is "the fox report. "tonight a teenager shot in the head at school. the anxious moments for mor
and obama administration trying to do something for public relations purposes that is not doing itself. >> bret: one thing they couldn't answer was cost. when pressed where does the cost go, neither the white house or h.h.s. could answer the question who would pay for the increased cost. where does it go? >> the cost goes back to the person buying the insurance plan so everybody pays for it. that is a wide investment. from the insurance company per speculative, they see it as preventive. it helps to stop a bigger cost, which is either an unintended pregnancy or somebody who gets sick because they lack, you know, obviously birth control and controlling cycles is more than just birth prevention. example of georgetown she was upset about a friend who had a uterin problem and helped by birth control. there are lots of levels. say in response to steve, i think cardinal dolan was clear saying this is the solution he was praying for. and secondly -- >> well, we played -- >> obama administration that just won. and absolutely beat the living daylights out of republicans on the so-called war on
this really isn't something that the pentagon wants. obama will need his whole cabinet onboard to get this done. chuck hagel is someone we don't think about who could be a leader on gun control but could be instrumental in making sure gun control is something that happens. >> what would be the net effect of a memorandum like that? >> it would be a huge step forward for the pentagon in undoing what i call the unholy alliance between the pentagon and the nra. when this bill was passed wayne lapierre came out and said this is one of the biggest pro-gun legislation accomplishments in 20 years, and he was right. it did a huge amount of damage, the abilities of cities and straights across the country to hold gun companies accountable. if hagel goes forward and says, look, what the pentagon did under rumsfeld was wrong, we can start to undo that damage. there is congressman adam schiff. what we could do is make it so that gun manufacturers are accountable. >> is there any other company that supplies to the military that has this kind of protection? >> absolutely not. building tanks, planes,
their healthcare liabilities and they are finding a way to do it and they are finding it through obama care. all of this will pick it up. we tried to tell everybody tried to talk to the american people but people seem to always want to vote to put something in their pocket instead of the other way around. >> chicago pension funds are rejected to dry up before the end of the decade. now the mayor's commission which is a four-member panel in chicago issued a report suggesting if they dump pre-med carry tire res on to the obama care exchange this could be great for retirees and the city taxpayers. would bebly would. what about the federal taxpayers. why should the people in the city who minded their p's and q's and balanced their budgets have to pick up the costs for these benefits that they didn't promise that they didn't receive anything in return for? is that fair? >> now tit is not fair but you don't see everybody yelling at you talk to fox. is it going to be covered anyplace else in the media? who will pick up the costs. you have a $275 million budget shortfall. that's 58,000 dollars per house
kinks that have to be worked out but he did also make clear and something president obama said from the beginning of his term he believed that enforcement truly needed to focus on employers because this is the draw. >> right. >> and as our economy recovers, that draw will exist again. it's certainly worth noting that the recession likely had a lot to do with some of the changes and the number of undocumented immigrants in this country and the number of people attempting to enter the country illegally. having said that, i think to his point about trying to crack down on employers and i guess ramp up enforcement, via fees, i would imagine would be quite frightening for businesses and industry that is are heavily dependent on undocumented workers. >> luke, you know, i remember quite clearly ann coulter commenting a while back after health care immigration was the big issue that conservatives needed to focus on because, quote, if the entire country goes the way of california republicans will never be able to win a national election again. i understand the political reality that republic
's characterization of president obama's policies, saying he strongly supports second amendment rights. as for that challenge by congressman blackburn one white house official tells me president obama would probably lose that competition, noting skeet shooting is not something he's done his entire life. lester? >> all right. kristen, thank you. >>> in alabama tonight a man with a gun continues to hold a little boy hostage in an underground bunker after allegedly shooting to death the driver of the school bus the boy was on four days ago. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in midland city, alabama, with that story. gabe, good evening. >> reporter: lester, so far this standoff has lasted more than 97 hours and there's no end in sight. just up the road behind me police say the suspect has a heater, blankets, and plenty of supplies in that bunker. the delicate and tense standoff has police here in southeastern alabama on edge. s.w.a.t. teams and hostage negotiators focused on an underground bunker, where police say jimmy lee dykes has held a 5-year-old boy for more than four days. >> i want to thank
out that president obama's judgment on want appointments and jack lew as treasury secretary . they are bad. >> you said something earlier that you said. republicans on the right side but going about it the wrong way. >> you live by the sword and you die by the sword. harry reid started this. >> starsted what? >> thatismerary -- tempory process. it is the risk they run when they play these kinds of gamings. >> not a usual position for rick. now to eric with what is coming up on cashin? >> wait until you hear the new excuse for spending taking hold in washington. cash in is on in the bottom of the hour. >> first on forbes. did you ever want to know what your coworkers make? many companies are clicking and letting you find out. some on the forbes' group are saying show me the >> private sector salaries not so private. growing number of companies are releasing how much employees are making. co-workers say it is too much information and morgan, you say no problem, explain. >> it is great for business whether it workings or not and represents innovation in the workplace it is good
or drives you. we have to make a choice what we're going to use it for. >> let's take a listen to something president obama said in his inauguration speech. >> a decade of war is now ending. an economic recovery has begun. america's possibilities are limitless. for we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands. youth and drive. diversity and openness, an endless capacity for risk and a gift for reinvention. my fellow americans, we are made for this moment and we will seize it so long as we seize it together. >> the president sounding upbeat but recognizing it has been a tough time and there are challenges ahead. how is he doing, do you think? a lot of this comes from a leader in terms of the spirit of a country and its ability to resurge, if you like. is obama the right man? do you like what you see for maybe the second term obama already? >> i love the man. i voted for him originally. in the meeting everybody was a big supporter. i said i love your heart. i know you care. i voted for you the first time. i said i'd love to know how it will be different when there's
with president barack obama when they meet this month. they'll also go over something that's been a thorn in japan-u.s. relations, the relocation of an american military base within okinawa. both governments want the plan to go ahead but people living in japan's south aren't onboard. nhk world reports. >> reporter: abe met with his counterpart to talk about the relocation of the futenma air station, a u.s. marine base. >> translator: we must remove the futenma air station as soon as possible in accordance with an agreement with the u.s. government. >> translator: we want the base to be moved out of okinawa. >> reporter: okinawa is japan's southernmost prefecture. the island district comprises only 0.6% of japan's land. but hosts 70% of the u.s. bases in the nation. for many, futenma symbolizes okinawa's unfair burden in ensuring japan's security. this is the futenma air station. you see aircraft, runway and if you turn this way, you can see how close the residential area of okinawa is to the space. in 1996, the u.s. agreed to return the futenma site to japan. masahide ota was okinawa's go

for obama library. here it is on something called newsmax. reagan's childhood home to become parking lot for obama library. really? is this really happening? >> no, no. this is really not happening. i mean, in the evidence-free right-wing world, it is true, and they all link to each other. but nowhere else is it true, including in the actual world. but the actual world is not their world. when that reporting is the supposedly straight news from fox news, when the senate foreign relations committee sends its republican members to world net daily to go talk about foreign policy ideas, this is their world. this is not the fringe. this is where they live. governing the united states is a really hard job. representing the united states in the world is a really, really hard job. today john kerry was officially sworn in to take over that job from hillary clinton. and he got to what amounts from a really well informed warning from his predecessor about the difficulties of that job. the evidence-based world is a hard enough place to live and to operate for us as a nation without half of our domes
to work in the united states. something like this already exists but it's not widely used. president obama plans on praising all of those proposals today. but he wills go a step further. now, what he's looking for is a more straightforward path to citizenship and what i mentioned earlier with the senate's plan, theirs would be more of a probationary method. today's announcement is the kickoff for the administration's push on immigration reform. we're back after the break. stay with us. i want the people who watch our show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation on your radio and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: chuck schumer s
career prices today. >> i think it's something clever to say like president obama mentioned about not letting kids get into football. our dad won't let us get into politics. i wantedded to do that. dad said no. it's not safe. which is it probably isn't. but football has been good it has been indeed. tomorrow we'll have jack and jackie harbaugh conducting a news conference, we're looking forward to that. that is going to be fun. and. >> and people will hear what they say say there. >> larry, thank you so much, great job in new orleans there. >> yes. >> join me tonight coming up then, ties that bind. 49ers and ravens and the real life blind side players facing off at the super bowl. >> then, at 11:00 more on the search for kevin collins. it's a story we broke here and new reaction. and that does it for this edition of abc 7 news. >> from all of us here, thanks for watching. we appreciate your time. >> good night, everyone. well, well, well. growing up, we didn't have u-verse. we couldn't record four shows at the same time. in my day, you were lucky if you could record two shows

i hope is a potential glimmer of possibility for something to move forward. president obama in his inaugural address and on election night said we need to do something about the way we run elections. >> indeed we do. >> that's a chance the country ought to try to take because not to rig the game, but to take kind of commonsense steps to modernize voter registration. >> gerrmanderring happens on both sides of the aisle. there could be a democratic governor that takes it over and flips the script. >> i think part of what needs to happen is that on the left we need to reframe this argument on our constitutional rights, right? we're having this conversation about gun rights as a constitutional right and all the reasons why we shouldn't make it harder to own a gun or give somebody a gun. yet, we're accepting all kinds of new restrictions to make it harder for people to vote, and, again, i think if we couch this in the constitution and the constitutional rights that we're talking about and erring on the side of protecting the individual, i hope we can reframe the conversation. >> what he
. they saw that in the last election, the hispanic vote went 71% for barak obama. so something needs to be done in the republican party as far as outreach to minorities. so when you listen to colin powell, agree with him or not, i think he's correct in saying on the one point that republicans do need to find a way to which to get the minority vote. >> brian: i think other people said that, i didn't see any racial part to it. but i think bill o'reilly was right. you know him. i also think it's interesting that colin powell is the most -- use a great guest. but everyone wants to book him because he's putting down the republican party and they're playing the bobby jindal comment. tonight see republicans turn on republicans. i thought that was the first time that you had somebody actually challenge colin powell and i think bobby jindal, we're supposed to talk to him over the weekend, i'll bring it up to him. >> gretchen: coming up, he was thrown out of the classroom in 1999, but that teacher is amazingly still on the payroll and thanks to the union, he even got a raise. we're going to ex

's a latina rallying cry that predates the obama campaign. after listening to the speech -- >> now we would like it hear from you. >> the activists are convinced they are at a magic moment. [ speaking spanish ] >> now democrats and republicans are getting together, which is something that did not happen before. >> i'm really, really happy. i'm really happy with their announcement. >> massive hispanic turnout for president obama brought republicans to the immigration reform table, with a bipartisan group of senators offering 11 million undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship if they pass a criminal background check, pay a fine and back taxes, learn english, and go to the back of the line. >> i feel excited. >> she was abused by an employer who brought her to the u.s. to clean her house. but she is only too happy to sacrifice to become a citizen. >> i get everything i have. >> you're not lazy, you can work, so you can pay everything. >> critics call the plan amnesty and it will only cost the gop votes. >> amnesty would hand to illegal aliens who are government dependent to the
think they buy into something that is such a perfect metaphor that obama would raise his childhood home. not only is that not the case, but they have radically different philosophies. >> but i think that part of it is just as they distorted reagan, toure, i think they distorted president obama because he's not saying government solves all the problems. he's not going to what is typically the liberal orthodoxy. but he has said government has a role in certain things ought to be guaranteed. so i think they really have both of them wrong, even though i think the vision of government under president obama is antithet kal to the vision that was supported by mr. reagan. >> i look at the modern gop as clint eastwood yelling at an empty chair and saying these are all of the things that obama is doing wrong. but you're talking to an imagined obama. and there are actual, reasonable critiques that they could level at the president and won some votes in 2012. but they didn't do that. they attacked an imagined obama. had they attacked the real obama, then they might get somewhere. let me say one mor
something in the senate and president obama and vice president biden continue to prioritize this and put the pressure on, do you think -- it's possible something will pass. i'm surprised that this is -- has had the political staying power it has. i've seen so many other school shootings and massacres come and go where people talk about action and it didn't happen. but you know, the nra is still dug in, they're not giving any ground. and i think that, you know, as a classic case where you have a very popular support for changes. but it's not necessarily intense. whereas you have a very intense organized lobby in the nra and members of congress who feel incredibly strongly on the other side, you know, it's often a formula for stalemate. so i think it remains to be seen. but you're not seeing a lot of movement on the part of republicans right now. and at the end of the day, they can -- they'll determine whether anything passes that's significant. >> but, michael brings up a question, which is what exactly senator reid is going to be willing to bring to the senate floor. because the democrat
here, but there are going to be -- this is something that obama has promised to do in his first four years repeatedly, did not get it done, and now he's going to be part of this. but some lawmakers think that the less engaged he is, it might be better off if he'sengaged ank its will. jon: well, he doesn't generally like to get involved in the nitty-gritty details of legislation, does he? >> no, no, and is we saw that in the fiscal cliff deal with joe biden getting involved. this is the perfect situation where you could have a bill eventually becoming law where obama does what he wants, he gives speeches, and his white house shop works at the details with members of congress, and there's a deal. and this is, clearly, i mean, there's a shift in the republican party. they know they've got to do better among hispanics, and there hasn't been a lot of criticism from the right on this bipartisan deal, not yet. there's been some but not nearly as much as there was six years ago. jon: bob cusack from "the hill," thank you. >> thank you. patti ann: growing concerns right now over the possible
playing football. they acknowledged that, didn't they? >> absolutely. unless there is something mrs. obama isn't telling us, this isn't going to become an issue for the president, but still an issue for parents. and that's what he was getting at around the country. football used to be the thing everybody sent their kids into. there is a culture in small towns built around the high school football games. the question is, is it something you want your kid playing. and that's what obama was tapping into. commissioner goodell addressed that today. he was gracious, thanked the president for his concerns, that he welcomes that kind of talk. but he did say that not only was his own youth football experience, of course, some of the best memories he has, expected him to say that but he talked about the advances the nfl and the league is trying to make. one thing, they'll put independent neurosurgeons on the sidelines, the doctors who are paid by the teams. these will be doctors that players can then consult with individually to see if it is in their interests to go back out on the field. that's a m
recently said that is something they oppose. president obama and vice president biden we expect them to hit the road to talk about this issue of gun safety. it's a part of their broader plan to get congress to sign on with some of the legislative changes they would like to see happen. >> well, clearly as you point out, it does not seem there's a coincidence to going to a place where we're talking about background checks given the attention that background checks and that issue received this week end. that seems to be where the white house is going to really have -- that and a high capacity magazines, those may be the two issues the white house has to fight the hardest on. >> reporter: absolutely. because the ban on assault weapons is something that i think if you talk to folks on the white house and the hill, they tell you that's going to be the most difficult piece of legislation to get passed. the white house believes that they will have a better chance in terms of limiting high capacity magazines and getting universal background checks. that seems to have more broad bipartisan support. h

of something clever to say lick president obama mentioned about not letting his kids in football. our dad wouldn't let us get in politic maybe that's what it was. i wanted to do that. dad said no it's not safe. which it probably isn't but football has been good. >> now to the nba. warriors display the depth tonight even with curry, an drawshtion karl and barns all out with injurie injuries. golden state no problems with the cavaliers. lets go out to cleveland where kaepernicking fever is spreading. despite the fourth road game in 5 notes the warriors look are sharp. david lee to thompson for the jam. led by 11 at the half. then lee to jack for the basket. he had 26 points and 12 assist. lee nearly had a triple double 20 point 13 rebound
. john mccain said on sunday we have to do something about the latino vote. president obama won 71% in the election a few months ago. he said today, the president is to unveil his own plan for immigration reform and will do that in las vegas. in nevada, a state where hispanicses makes.27% of the population, comes a day after a bipartisan group of eight senators reached a compromise how to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform. included in that bill, a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers currently in this country. >> other bipartisan groups and senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk opposing immigration reform than supporting it. >> the what's going on now is unacceptable. in reality, what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes and e
the bill again as soon as possible and i and good timing. it was something that president obama put into his american jobs back. this is the bill that has received a lot of attention and has had a lot of widespread commitment from members on the hill, as well as the white house, to make sure that we keep talking about this issue and combating this unfair practice. host: on the city level, this met resistance from mayor bloomberg? guest: mayor bloomberg announced that he was going to veto it. he was in particular worry that it would lead to frivolous lawsuits. there is this talking point out there amongst some that means that this means employers will not even interview unemployed people. i think that the employer would be smart to interview unemployed people to show that they were not discriminating. i do not follow the logic. host: the bill says that if you have been unemployed for a period and to not get a job that you applied for, you could sue the employer arguing that they were discriminating against you. i cannot think of any rational employer that would not want to know what
something to the table. we don't need to wait for president obama which he will probably talk about. but republicans, surprise us. do something that's unexpected. you know? take a lead on something like immigration. why not? i think that's what they need. >> i think that is what they need. and compromise is not analogous to treason. thanks for your time this evening. and don't forget to catch krystal on "the cycle" week days at 3:00 p.m. right here on msnbc. >>> coming up, president obama's massive agenda. he's charging ahead. and tonight signs they're cracking in congress. >>> plus chris christie pays a visit to david letterman. why all republicans should watch it. stay with us. ♪ great, everybody made it. we all work remotely so this is a big deal, our first full team gathering! i wanted to call on a few people. ashley, ashley marshall... here. since we're often all on the move, ashley suggested we use fedex office to hold packages for us. great job. [ applause ] thank you. and on a protocol note, i'd like to talk to tim hill about his tendency to use all caps in emails. [ shout
terrifying. >> you have crowds to go into ecstasy when they see president obama speak, passing out and the excitement of it. despite the absurdity of the entire campaign experience, there is something uplifting and strange about watching. that is the sublime part. the terrifying part is everything else. >> you found you were done with the campaign trail, that you would never go again. it is the same vow i have made. it is a waste of time, so 2012 i stayed in the studio and cover the convention every night but did so from los angeles. i did not waste money to cover something that is not going to make the news. that is my vow. i am trying to stick to mind. you broke your val. why did you break your vowels? >> i started not by covering everyone -- break your bow? >> i started by covering everyone who lost. hillary clinton, when she was supposed to be president. this was after i was the conventional wisdom was that hillary was supposed to be president. i said, i cannot deal with it. i quit my job at newsweek and went to afghanistan. >> you would take afghanistan over mccain? wow. i do
much what we thought we did. that is the dialogue we have with the incoming obama administration. i began my longest conversation with them at the agency, something along the lines of i think we have already done what you have done. it is appropriate in the new circumstances. it did not hold. all american detainees under any agent of the american government have to be treated with the army field manual. it was proved in september 2006. i would suggest the casual manual was written with the knowledge that there was option b. that this program was also available. now we are left with this option a. it should not concern you. before you get to interrogation, you have to capture and we do not capture. we have made it so legally difficult and so politically dangerous to capture that it seems to the outside looking in that the default option is to take the terrorists off the battlefield in another way. >> could you talk a bit about what obama inherited? we had moderate sleep deprivation. tummy slap. a diet of liquid ensure. i'm sure the product owners would love to hear that is torture. [
-building here at home, something that not just candidate obama, but also candidate romney, agreed about. we are looking at unprecedented cuts in spending on national security. we are looking at the prospect of drawing down from afghanistan. we are looking at a lot of changes. not just here in the united states, but in the world. one of the questions i know that we have is whether we are ready for the exchanges. i suspect that most of us believe we are not. tom, make -- maybe you could start as out and talk about the sequestration that paul ryan told us this weekend is going to happen. >> it is a prediction that at this point seems like a certainty, but i would argue it has been a near certainty once beat sequestration provision was written into the budget control act. i will talk a bit about sequestration per se, but i would regard it as a symptom and not the disease itself. the disease itself is erosion to the point of vanishing, almost, of the bipartisan political consensus for military string, for peace through strength, as people used to say. that is really something that over the cours
, as you know, when now president obama was running, chuck hagel stopped just short of endorsing obama. but he did travel with him to the middle east. and, of course, his wife endorsed obama. so that's something that's going to, you know, split up a relationship. but one more thing, i don't think you can underestimate the importance of this president of having the enlisted man, sergeant hagel, be the person who heads up the pentagon. because what's very important to this president is that he have somebody at the pentagon, particularly as you look to reshape the pentagon and pare it down, whom he believes can stand up to the generals, jake. that's really important to this president. not be cowed by the generals. and not do exactly what they want. but listen to them and tell them, you know, from the point of view of the man who was in the fox hole, i can tell you this is what we need to do and this is what we don't need to do. and the president also believes that hagel has a lot of credibility of somebody who's been in the fox hole, whose been wounded. >> literally. >> who literally unde
or a restaurant or something, and you have more than 50 employees, you still under the obama care unless you get a waiver you have to provide for contraception even if it violates your religious beliefs at least that is how i read it. >> and if that is the case we will have a lot of unhappy people. religious institutions will be out of it. again, this is part of the broader topic that you raised which is the government attempting to step in it and dictate to people in their lives and we always have government playing a role in peoplele's lives. it is a question of how expansive it is. individuals you need to purchase insurance or you get fined. small businesses need to provide insurance that looks like this and is far more expensive than you are now laying out for premium support for the employees. people see this as an erosion of their freedom to make decisions on their own and when you add in things like gun control and the ly if you areon's regulatory running a business you think the government is stepping into your life way too much. >> the other interesting aspect at least with first blush
that, look, they need more time before they can get a long-term solution. something that extends to ten years. of course, president obama will make the case that he believes any solution should include cuts and new revenues. that is something that republicans are staunchly opposed to. they believe they should avert the sequester through a series of cuts. so this is really where the big argument lies. it is where it has been for quite some time now. but that is what we expect president obama to come out and say when he speaks publicly, a little bit later on this afternoon. thomas? >> kristen welker, great to see you. thanks so much. we want to bring in this power panel for this tuesday. joining me is jackie kucinich, maria teresa kumar, and republican strategist, chip saltsman. we have a lot to talk about, gang. and i want to dive right in and talk about what the president will be doing in terms of immigration, and when then that what got the president re-elected is the obama coalition. maria teresa, you know this best of anybody, with the work that voto latino did. and as we look at the
't tnearu say. >> with president obama's popularity, he could do more. he could say it's try time to try something radical. a flat tax by the end of the year. work with me. >> you're right. >> he could do something that would amazing. >> greg says he doesn't want to. >> he's playing croquet. >> he did say i want to put back on the entitlement for provisions i proposed last year. that was a big deal. >> where did he propose them. >> john boehner. >> it was a backdoor meeting. >> he and boehner had an agreement and they couldn't sell it. >> what is great about being 26 is you can be unemployed and get free healthcare. if you had a job, you would have had it anyway. >> the most dangerous thing is jung people are sitting at home playing xbox and getting used to it. that is going to be all they know, which that's why down the road -- >> who is going to hire them in five years. >> i am. >> 95% of them are working. >> who's going to hire the other people that need jobs. >> there are a lot of people working in that group. you talk about black unemployment high, as is hispanics. among white colle
>> back to snow again. is this a fluke or something we should get used to? >> during his inauguration president obama talked about climate change and its impact and with these extreme fluctuations in temperature we have had, a lot of people are asking what is going on with the weather? today, wind and stinging cold. hours earlier, sheets of rain. causing flash floods. yesterday, balmy weather blanketed the area. some people were sweating it out. remember a few days ago? record-breaking cold. the roller-coaster weather has a lot of people asking what is up? >> ester it was 70 and is january. >> it is completely ridiculous. >> some people's dressed strange weather is nothing new. >> we have a few winters that were extreme as far as amounts of snow. >> while the debate rages, some say what we saysee here is the result of a roaring planet. >> all that are the patterns predicted by climate change. we have been seeing it in spades. >> some are worried that as the plan gets warmer, the weather fluctuations will grow more intense and the effects more devastating. it has been pretty extreme as
takeaways from president obama's speech yesterday was that he is happy the bipartisan group of 8 senators come together with a plan to inform the immigration system since their plan is pretty close to his own plan. something the senator and president share as a priorityiss a desire to create a pathway to citizenship. >> we have to deal with the 11 million individuals here illegally. we all agree these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for immigration reform to work it must be clear there is a pathway to citizenship. >> the pathway to citizenship is tied to tiert pored tighter bor security. he didn't say that in his speech. that's something marco rubio who is part of the group working on the details of the legislation is worried about. >> if this endeavor becomes a bidding war to see who can come up with the cheapest way to a green card as possible this isn't going to go well, folks. >> white house officials think republicans working on immigration reform need president obama's blessing to rally support in the latino community. the flip side of that coin from
of victimhood. that president obama is more interested in defeating them than he is in getting something done for the country. last week house speaker john boehner started that drumbeat saying president obama was out to annihilate the republican party, and ryan amplified it when he spoke at a future of conservatism summit this saturday. >> the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyielding. we can't get rattled. we won't play the villain in his morality plays. we have to stay united. we have to show that if given the chance, we can govern. that we have better ideas. >> president obama has said he hoped this re-election would break that republican fever of total opposition, but in an interview with "the new republic" interview, brand new magazine, he said obviously that hasn't happened yet. joining me is columnist cynthia tucker and "the washington post's" eugene robinson. i want to start with gene up here. it seems to me they have this new sort of gee, whiz, we're getting beat up, but they were the party that for four years shut the door on a new president. he won the elec
